Woman alleges rape on Infosys campus, two arrested

Pune: A woman working as a canteen cashier at the sprawling Infosys campus in Hinjewadi area here was allegedly raped by two men, police said Tuesday.

The two accused have been arrested, they said.

According to a complaint registered by the victim with police, the two accused -- Paritosh Baag and Prakash Mahadik -- entered the washroom when the woman was inside it on December 27, they said.

One of the men allegedly raped her while the other clicked pictures on his mobile phone and threatened her, Hinjewadi police said.
